It is anticipated that the current study will add three new perspectives to the relevant literature: first, they will examine empowering leadership styles in educational settings; second, they will seek to understand how these styles affect, in particular, teachers' job performance and third, explain how emotional attachment mediates and leader-member exchange (LMX) modifies the relationship between academic leadership styles and leader-member exchange. A survey method is a planned poll created to gather particular data from people representing the population. The education sector (Public and private Colleges faculty and their principal) in Rahim Yar Khan, Pakistan. A sample size of 300 people was used to gather data. In the current study, the researcher surveyed numerous institutes with the help of SPSS. The organisation now depends heavily on the best work from every employee to manage this increased workload. In light of this, the current study examined how leadership affects employee job performance. The study's key finding is that effective leadership strongly predicts job performance and emotional attachment. It means that employees often act in a way that helps them embrace the same kind of empowering ideology by mirroring the empowering behaviour of their superiors.
